The Facts

256 pages; published April 2013

The Basics

Ash is a 16-year-old master thief. Benjamin is her super-techie-genius sidekick. Together, they are planning the daring, high-stakes heist of a lifetime – ripping off the super-rich, super-crafty Hammond Buckland. When a deadly assassin and a team of government agents get added to the mix, it’s clear that nothing about this mission is going to be easy.

The Booktalk

Hammond Buckland is not just rich, he’s super-rich, crazy rich, so rich he doesn’t know what to do with it all. Ash – ingenious teen thief – wants some of what he’s got and she has chosen today to steal $200 million dollars she knows is hiding in his fancy office building. It’s the most ambitious heist she and her techie-backup Benjamin have ever tried. Ash knows it’s going to be a challenge. She loves a challenge. But she never could have bargained for what she gets – a wild cat-and-mouse game involving a dangerously evil assassin, mysterious passageways, suspicious powders, and one flying car.

It’s non-stop action with endless mind-boggling twists on this Money Run.

But Wait … There’s More

Billed as #1 in the Ashley Arthur series, Money Run offers a great lead in to more adventures with a charming youthful criminal duo. Second in the series, Hit List has been released in Australia.
